Mackenzie Thorpe is one of the biggest selling British artists of the last 30 years. His work is rooted in authenticity, embodied in emotional expression, and always carries a message of hope.
Mackenzie’s journey has taken him from the shipyards of Middlesbrough to an internationally acclaimed artist, and his working-class roots in the north of England inspire his atmospheric and poignant pictures. His works express an entire range of human emotion, from the special bond of love and friendship to the importance of self-reflection and individual triumphs. His works are a tribute to the creativity within us all and are a vivid expression of hope and the human spirit.
Throughout all his work there is a wonderful sense of 'love and truth'. He feels that love can conquer all and his work is a testimony to this fact. He is a special man with incredible talent, which he never abuses. He is a man of the people, a true artist.
“My background for an artist is a bit of an unlikely one, and for me, it was about not letting the hand which life has dealt you be the deciding factor in what you choose to do. The power is within us all to change our circumstances and reach out for our dreams.” ~ MacKenzie Thorpe
